(SEYMOUR) - A Seymour man was arrested after he allegedly broke into an apartment of some people he had just met ate their food and threatened to kill them with a chainsaw blade.

35-year-old Christopher E. Davis faces at least 10 criminal charges including burglary, theft and four counts each of criminal confinement and intimidation.

Seymour Police Chief Bill Abbott says Davis met the four people at a restaurant last week and then started showing up uninvited to their apartment in the 300 block of South Jackson Park Drive. If the couple was not home, he would wait for them to show up.

On Saturday, Davis allegedly barged into the apartment and began eating and drinking whatever he could find and threatened to "cut their heads off."

At one point, Davis barged into one of the rooms of the apartment where he found the man asleep and held the blade to the man's throat.

At 7:40 p.m. Saturday, Jackson County dispatch received a call from a woman whispering, and Seymour police went to the apartment to see what was going on. When officers arrived they found the door open and heard a man talking inside. After police interviewed everyone, Davis was arrested.

During the arrest, police found Davis in possession of a glass meth pipe. Davis is being held without bond at the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown pending his initial hearing.

According to Chief Abbott this is not the first time Davis had been in trouble. According to documents, just two months ago, Davis pleaded guilty to intimidation or to threatening another person to place them in fear of retaliation for a prior act. He was sentenced to time served in that case. In 2014, he was convicted of battery resulting in bodily injury.
